Children can benefit greatly from fluoride treatments. Fluoride is a mineral that is in the bones, naturally. It has the capacity to strengthen tooth enamel and make it more impervious to decay. Fluoride treatments are particularly important for children. The process of having fluoride treatments is very easy to experience and involves no pain or discomfort. A specialized dental fluoride is simply painted onto the child’s teeth. It is a somewhat sticky gel that easily adheres to the teeth. The fluoride remineralizes the tooth enamel. These treatments are safe and highly effective, and often an advised treatment for children.
